In those times photographers use film which was light sensitive and processed to make negatives which were then used to make photographic prints. Using a Nikon FM2 with a variety of lenses, Chris traveled across the USA from California to New York, to Belfast in Main to New Orleans in the deep south taking photographs along the way. Once back in the UK Chris set about making the images in his darkroom, processing the film and making a selection of images to print. The largest print that can be made using the photographic enlarger is 20x24 inches and made using fiber-based double weight bromide paper.
The original prints are for sale and can still be produced today in Chris's darkroom in Stockton on Tees.
Here is a selection of the photographs on show at the digital gallery. Contact Chris for sales and enquiries.

“I don’t take a photograph, I Capture a Moment, The Decisive Moment”. Henri Cartier-Bresson photographer of Magnum Photos . "Photography is not like painting," Cartier-Bresson told The Washington Post in 1957. "There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative," he said. "Oop! The Moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever."
Commissioned by Tees Valley Community Foundation to photograph the team at the office. Rather than photograph individuals looking at the camera, the idea here is to capture team members as they work and engage in conversation. Using available light and a 200 mm lens at f2.8, I am able to photograph the subjects unobtrusively.
